The 6th Presidents Cup Matches were held in 2005 between September 22 and September 25. They were played at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Virginia, United States. The United States team won the competition by a margin of 18½–15½. The honorary chairmen was former President of the United States George H. W. Bush.


Both teams had 12 players plus a non-playing captain. The competition was four days long with 34 total matches worth a single point each. Although the number and type of matches played was the same as in previous events, the schedule was slightly altered. Six foursome matches were played on the first day and six four-ball matches were played on the second. On the third day, five four-ball matches were played in the morning and five foursome matches were played in the afternoon. The competition concluded with twelve singles matches on the final day. Because of the unresolved outcome in the previous President's Cup, an additional change was made to the structure. Under the new format, the singles matches would go to extra holes if at the conclusion of the 18 hole round the match was all-square and the Cup had not been decided.
